The original ratchet and clank was fine for me until the last boss fight. I couldnt bother finishing it.

I played ratchet and clank on normal and it wasn’t hard at all.

Playing Ratchet and Clank 2016 on easy mode... Man! That game IS easy mode when compared to the original 3, even on its hardest setting!

Am I the only one who didn't find dark souls hard, but things like Jak 2 were excruciatingly difficult?

I had never played a God of War before until the latest one which I completed recently, thought it was amazing so I’ve decided to play all the old ones through Playstation Now. I got to the spike towers yesterday and it drove me mad , haven’t shouted at my tv like that for years and years haha!

my most memorable spike of difficulty is god of war 2 fight vs zeus

I laughed so hard from 0:40 to 1:25. Literal tears running down my cheeks. But I’m the only gamer in my family so no one else understood what I was laughing at 😂😂😂

Personally I think Jax and daxtor is the death march version of ratchet and clank but there was certain parts of ratchet that got pretty hard but once you figured it out it was easy

Best part of this video : 1:00

I normally find Gizmaluke in FF9 a challenge, as it’s really early in the game so grinding chances have been few, and suddenly this is thrown at you. It normally take me a couple of tries.

That goddamn spike tower in God Of War pissed me off to the point where I had a splitting headache from all the shouting

Ship Graveyard difficulty spike? I thought it was when the game finally decided to be fun
John Young (1 month ago)
Crash 1 high road that’s all I’m saying. The game is pretty easy until you get to that level And that spike in god of war always makes me rage when I play it
Logan Palmer (1 month ago)
It's always the turret mini-game sections in the Jak games for me. Jak 1 - Shooting the swamp rat lurkers in Boggy Swamp (WAY harder than the fishing mini-game) Jak 2 - Shooting the Krimson Guard jetpack guys and the battleship at the Drill Platform Jak 3 - Defending Spargus from the War of the Worlds-esque mech things near the end of the game.

Honestly the real difficulty spike in uncharted 3 is that one guy in chapter 14 with the armour and chain gun. Litterally kills you in shot on brutal mode. I rage quit at him
Tim Clark (1 month ago)
Ni no kuni 2 has one too when you fight brineskimmer. Its level 42. I'm level 37. Every boss till now I've been over leveled.
The Real Outsider (1 month ago)
I personally thought the challenge of olympus in the first GOW was a much higher difficulty spike, especially the last one... I spent 6 hours doing just the last one
Sith 1605 (1 month ago)
ok so remember how you mentioned overleveling is great well the last time i played dark cloud 1 for ps2 i got such a good sword that i managed to beat dran in 2 HITS

I did #7 first time, wasn’t even aware it was a spike!

5:10 Never underestimate the power of running away like a wuss, for those who master it are effectively untouchable

One of the worst difficulty spikes I've ever been through was the Batomys boss fight in Valkyria Chronicles. Massive tank that comes out of nowhere, and has an invincible bodyguard that can one round any of your units. Ridiculous yes, but can eventually be overcome.

Dragon Ball Budokai 1: Story mode Gohan vs Cell final fight. My child self gave up only to return years later after 2 was released in order to find it surprisingly easy

What about the part in darksiders warmstered edition twilight cathedral where you have to get the last sword and have to face 3 really hard enemies with no checkpoints

Uncharted 3 and ratchet and clank werent that hard to complete...
Dave PBG (2 months ago)
I'm a casual and the sewer from Ratchet took me 3 attempts. The first 2 were literally just to show me you couldn't stop and fight anything, just run. The first 2 attempts i tried kill, run, kill run, kill. on every play through since it's been a one shot. this level may kill you 2-3 times but that's about it. had more deaths on final boss or random gunship / large brain encounters then i got a level 10 ryno and deaths became a memory

Yeah my cousin had driver and I only beat the tutorial once and it was so difficult not knowing what to do but then again I was 7- 8 yrs old so I don't know what your issue was.
Jesse Karella (2 months ago)
idk what he was talking about on Jak & daxter 2, the water in that game is not instant death. in fact you need to swim in order to retrieve certain (none required) items like precursor orbs.

Wow. I never knew that the sewer part in Ratchet & Clank was so hard. I remember my cousin owning the demo of the original on the PS2 and whenever we got to that part we tried to rush as fast as all hell just to see what lied beyond. Unfortunately, we never got the chance to find out :( I could try by myself but sadly, my cousin gave his PS2 away to a friend some years ago... Wish he gaved that to me :(

I saw the Driver tutorial and instantly died of laughter from memories of not being able to pass it

Dark souls definitely have a difficulty Spike. Have you fought ornstein and smough? After that it's smooth sailing, but O&S will screw a new player numerous times (third try for me cuz solaire summon. Praise the sun!). Dark souls 2 is just a clusterfuck, but in 3 the dancer marks a steep difficulty Spike if you fight her early, like I did...
Knorkes Holzbrett (3 months ago)
that Jak2 mission where you had to clean the canalisation with 3 idiots who where A, ultra slow and B, always getting killed. or where you had to do the race through whole haven city against that one guy from the crimson guard 😥

I think people stuck on these bits for so long, sorry your just not that good..... lol

I played the sewer on normal and it was very easy. I'm assuming this guy is at least 20 years older than me...
Catarina Marmelada (3 months ago)
I must disagree with you because crushing ratchet and uncharted were super doable! Not that hard, actually Love all your videos 😂 keep on the awesome work 👏

Is...is no one going to talk about that blasted first oblivion gate in the elder scrolls IV? By then you've killed a couple bandits, looted their hideouts and then you get w alloped by dremora. My character was bow based too and I ran out of arrows, and then had to use my knife, which broke soon after. I don't want to ever think about that...ever.

What made porco grosso annoying for me was the fact that just about any move he pulls of knocks you of your feet Lost 2 miracle moves because of that

Ni no kuni is just randmly cheap... Not hard, cheap, game is a breeze then you are too weak out of no where.

Final Fantasy Tactics has 2 really bad spikes: Golgorund Execution Site (you are split up and outnumbered, plus Gafgarion is always an issue) and *shudder* the Wiegraf 1v1 battle.

I used to get stuck on the Part of KH2 when you have to fight the pirates for the medallion but could only hit them in the moonlight, yeah... Then it just became “Why the f*ck is Xaldin so hard”

Apartment 7 I never got caught at a disadvantage because I always build up all my characters in multi-character games evenly when one character reaches 11 point I change the character out to another character and get used to using every single character that I'm that I have even if I don't like the character just so I don't get carded at a disadvantage if I'm forced to use that character

I had almost forgotten about all the time i wasted trying to beat the Driver tutorial... thanks for those horrible memories! Also Demon gate in FF7 sucks... that is all.

Aeris is the most op character in the game. If you want unfair difficulty, try Xenogears. You have those sections of the game where you fight several bosses one after the other. The save points are also pretty sparse.

Crushing difficulty levels ? SMT : Devil Survivor 1&2? Anyone ? Hmmm?

DS games have difficulty spikes, very noticeble spikes. The begining is considered easy and then somewhere after 1/4 into the game you hit your first wall and there are few of them.

I was thinking Goat man from Final Fantasy Tactics. Which is immediately followed by the most frustrating escort mission in history.

That difficulty spike rob face is the face you'll have on the whole time when playing Jak 2. You'll most likely do what a lot of others do and skip straight to Jak 3, trust me it's worth it, it's not hard to catch up on the story. For me, Jak 2 was certainly a love hate relationship for me

in jak 2 at this water slums, you turn into dark jack, jump above water then hit square and bang, you just swim to the end, ezz
